Ibis Budget Melbourne CBD
Ranked #115 of 160 Hotels in Melbourne
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We stayed in a family Room, 2 adults/ 2kids , comprising of a Queen bed and a double bunk, It is budget, but thats what we wanted as we are there for Grand Prix and not to spend day in room. Room had a small fridge, Bunk beds are very noisey, so kid 1 put matress on floor as he moves around a lot. Less noise. from bunks as kid 2 doesnt move around alot. Very small room, but was value for money, Supreme Location, Subway next door, Coles supermarket, McDonalds, and heaps of other food places on the same street . Trams are super close/ Would stay there again.

Stayed: March 2013, traveled with family

This place was very convenient, clean as a whistle, safe, and a good price.
However, you have to take everything you need with you. Nothing is provided except a great comfortable clean bed. No phone, no washcloth, no bath mat, no glass, no nothing---but it's a budget place, so it's not a big deal. Just be aware you need to take everything with you.

The hotel was right in the center of Melbourne within great walking distance to everything.
The room wasn't all that much but it came at a very good prices so i wasn't expecting the Ritz.
The people at reception were always there to lend a hand if need be which was good.
All in all if your looking for a cheap hotel right in the heart of Melbourne with a nice clean bed to sleep in then i would highly recommend staying at the Ibis budget

This hotel is nothing fancy, but a good value room for the night. Rooms are clean and quiet. Our room had a double bed with additional bunk beds. Great central location, close to trams, trains and restuarants in the centre of the CBD.

This is a very basic hotel, so dont expect much. But it covers everything that you would need, a bed, your own bathroom, great location and good value for money. The only drawback here since it is affordable is you get some younger travelers who can be very noisy. The only other thing I didnt like was that they were very strict about the 2 pm check in time, which can be annoying since I arrived from a 6 am flight...so had to walk around Melbourne before I could get checked in, they do have a place to store your luggage but sometimes you just want to have a quick nap and shower. Good value and great location, so might stay again if I dont get a better deal.

This is a budget hotel - the room we had was basic (no phone, wardrobe etc) but quite large with a really comfortable queen bed (with a bunk bed above which hubby had to be careful he didn't hit his head on if he sat up). The room was clean (although the carpet did have a couple of stains) and the air conditioner worked well. The corridors were a little worse for wear and quite narrow. One of the lifts was smelly. The receptionist (Angela) was really nice and stored our bags for us as our room wasn't ready and arranged for us not to have aroom on the same floor as a school group. The room faced Elizabeth Street and there was a little bit of noise from the street. The best thing about the hotel was its location in central Melbourne and Angela, the really nice receptionist.
